The new Honda CR-Z sports hybrid to debut in Canada next May

http://www.auto123.com/en/news/car-...ut-in-canada-next-may?model=CR-Z&artid=109672

Honda Canada executives have just confirmed that the little two-seater, already announced for Japan, will make its debut on the Canadian market next spring… as a hybrid!

The 2010 Honda CR-Z, which has made several appearances during the past auto show season, is scheduled to hit Asia in February.

Under the hood is Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA), which combines a 1.3-litre, naturally-aspirated combustion engine with a small electric motor for a net output of 98 horsepower. It’s all managed by a continuously-variable transmission (CVT).

However, according to Jerry Chenkin, Executive Vice President of Honda Canada, the CR-Z will be the only new hybrid model to make it to Canada. As of today, the automaker has no plans to offer Canadians the Honda Fit Hybrid, recently announced for Europe along with the Jazz Hybrid.

This is really great news. As of now, there has been no announcement about whether or not the car will be released in the US... however, I would assume now that its "official" for Canada, that the US will be announced shortly.

Great find, and GREAT news for all of us CRZ enthusiasts!
